Falling in Love Again....

Oh, my. I've got a new obsession. It's winging its way to me from The Essamplaire.... Sarah McPhail. Isn't she beautiful? This is it though--I mean really IT. For the year. I refuse to buy a single other project, especially another BAP. Barbara was right when she commented that certain projects cause you to dwell on your mortality. So do certain collections of projects, I think.

While I'm waiting for Sarah McPhail to roll into town, I picked "Peaceful Paradise" from Midsummer Night Designs from (one of) the WIP bin(s). It's about 1/4 done. I'm going to try to visit some of my older WIPs more frequently, and I'm also doing the Sail Away SAL.


"Will you have time to pet the bunny's nose?"

Oh yes, Sarah is indeed a beauty! And I love that you are working on that MSN's design, it is one of my faves!!

Better pet that sweet nose!

How to resist that nose, you can't! What is a BAP anyway?

Deb said...

Sarah is a beautiful design and I look forward to your WIP pics. It looks like a large project so I can see why you've made this the one for the year! Love your bunny pictures so much!

Melissa said...

Hmmm. She is very pretty! It's hard though to say "this is it" (isn't it?). I look forward to seeing your progress.

As to Peaceful Paradise, I was just eyeing it yesterday - to buy or not to buy. I'm trying to be good.

You're right about the mortality bit too! Give the bunny a kiss on the nose & have a great weekend Glenna!

Margaret said...

Glenna, I think we match! lol! Guess who else broke down and ordered Sarah? And just had to have her? She is just the most gorgeous thing ever! And I asked Margriet before ordering -- no surface embroidery! Whew! :D I also love that Midsummer Night Designs piece. Sigh. Ok, so when is Sarah arriving? I want her NOW!!! lol!

Ohhhh, how beautiful! (The designs and the nose!)

Love to Stitch said...

Oh yes, I do like Sarah, alot! I have my list going over at Essamplaire, I love those samplers! Gosh. We will need like 25 lives to get all our wish list and stash complete! Nice going on your WIP!!

There is always time to pet a bunny nose. In fact, nose-petting should be top priority!

The Scarlett House said...

Gosh darn it, Glenna. Why oh why did you have to go and post about Sarah? I saw it recently and thought about ordering it. You may have just pushed me right over the edge. I swear, I'll have to live well into my hundreds to even make a dent in the ol'stash.

Kellie said...

Sarah is certainly beautiful. As is Peaceful Paradise. I can't resist the BAPs either. They are the ones that I am most drawn to. That's a sweet bunny nose in that picture.

Siobhan said...

Oh wow, Sarah is irresistable! I can see why you couldn't pass it up. ;) And remember, Market is next month... you can't say that you're not buying more till AFTER! LOL Love your MSN design, too--love that one!

Jennifer said...

That new pattern is really really nice. Can't wait to see your progress pics! Also love Peaceful Paradise! That's going on my wish list for sure. Your bunnies are sooo cute! I love the pics of them that you share!

I just said NO to Sarah! So There! Actually, I once had a girlfriend named Sarah .. no .. maybe her name was Sara .. whatever .. anyway ...

PS - Pet the nose. We were a bit neglectful during the hot spell here and the disdain, disapproval, and general ignoring is deafening ....

Great bum shots for Hans!!!
